Family Events we Missed

We want to make all the major events in our large family but that is hard to do. We missed the marriage of Matthew Klein, our grandson, to McKayla Muniz on April 26 in Pleasantville, Iowa. This is a picture of the bride and groom.

We missed the graduation celebration for daughter, Joy Miller, who received her Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, Summa Cum Laude, on May 10. Joy lives in Sea Brook, Texas. Joy will go to law school in August.

The Graduation Open House for our niece, Melinda Block Guerra, was May 17 in Des Moines, Iowa. Mindy graduated with a degree of Doctor of Pharmacy. We did go to her wedding last November.

My sister, Angie Rheuport, had a knee replacement surgery on May 12 in Des Moines, Iowa.

My father, Rev. Clarence Hoven, had major abdominal surgery on May 15 in Ottumwa, Iowa.

We even missed the birth of Sara Mercedes Miller on April 30 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The good news is that we will fly to Robert and Nathalia Miller’s home in Raleigh, N. C. on June 12 for the baptism of Sara. We will also see Joy Miller and have a graduation party too. Our plans are to fly back to Anchorage on June 17.

Darlene, welcome to Alaska! Your trip took you away from some important family events, but we sure understand that you cannot be everywhere at the same time. You are living your own life, and that's as it should be.

Good pix of the kids (married or otherwise!).
